This humorously phallic gilded bronze image of a "placentarius" (cake-seller) holds a dish for sauces. He was still packed in his box in the House of the Ephebe at the time of the eruption. The folding in the margin of his foreskin is accurate

The lower margin of this handsome figure's foreskin projects forward as they do in life, but more so, much like a teapot and perhaps for the same reason, to prevent drips, because here it serves as a fountain.
House of the Vetii

The fertility god Priapus (who can also be identifed by his basket of fruit)
weighs his penis. A large bag (of gold?) is necessary.

House of the Vetii

Though their penises are erect, their foreskins are not at all
retracted - this is seldom seen in life.
